Coming in a smashing Skimo Co blue, the Mezzalama 2 Race Jacket is a flexible, form-fitting, and warm jacket for racing, touring, training, and just generally getting after it in a variety of conditions. The Mezzalama 2 Race Jacket is made from a combination of stretch fleece and Carvico stretch fabric, allowing for fantastic mobility, breathability, and warmth in a lightweight jacket. Sticking with the theme of fast, for quick transitions this jacket sports internal pockets for your skins and two external chest zip pockets for nutrition, or other essentials. The fit is athletic, and part of that look comes in the form of a low-profile hood that will easily fit under a helmet. Elastic hem and trim around the hood, waist, and wrists of the jacket trap heat in the hopes of keeping you toasty like a French brioche. For additional warmth around the wrists, there are thumb holes in the cuffs for yet another layer to safeguard against intrusive snow that belongs on the ground, not up your sleeves. The Mezzalama 2 Race Jacket is a great choice for those looking into a breathable, athletic jacket with easily accessible pockets and naturally a piece that comes in Skimo Co blue.

Questions & Reviews
I currently use the TLT pants size 48 and a Mezzalama 2 Race Jacket also size 48 and they fit really well.
I’m 6’-2” 170 pounds, 31” waist.
This suit looks like a great option for race day outings if I can get the sizing right. The description starts with the 4 way stretch comment and I’m curious if it is best to hedge my sizing choice on stretching enough hight wise to work well if use a 48 or being narrow enough in a size 50 not to be baggy and somewhat less than ideal for wicking sweat.
I appreciate any input on this and understand if you chose to punt on the question.
Cheers and happy holidays to the Skimo.com team
We'd recommend the same size as your race jacket, the suit should fit similarly. It might be a touch tighter, but it's fairly stretchy. So a 48 / Medium for you.
Thank you for the great feedback on Race Suit sizing, apologies for adding this question to the incorrect page. ( Even the simplest things escape me at times )
Have a great holiday
My name is Julen Urdaibai. I'm a stage racer. Next year, in February, I will race in the Arctic Circle, in Swedish Lapland. It is a race of 230 km., In self-sufficiency and with temperatures that oscillate between -25 to -30ºC.
As a runner I have never used skimo clothing. But for this race in particular I am evaluating this option. I will probably wear a thermal shirt from the Lurbel brand as a first layer, for extreme cold. But as a second layer I am in doubt whether to wear a jacket like the “Dynafit Mezzalama Race 2 Jacket”. Can you give me your opinion? Will the thermal layer + the Dynafit jacket be enough? Do I have an extra jacket in my backpack?
Thanks for your time.
Have a nice day.
